The Earth's Face: Landscapes & Its Relation to the Health of the Soil by Ehrenfried Pfeiffer

144 pages.

Ehrenfried Pfeiffer was a pioneer of biodynamics, first in Switzerland and then in the U.S. during the 1940s. This wide-ranging book reflects his concern for the various landscapes of the Earth and the effects of industrialization and mechanization on the environment.

The Earth’s Face investigates a number of different landscapes, including plains, mountains, and woods, as well as urban centers, parks, and gardens, and explores what factors—natural and artificial—lead to the maintenance or loss of soil fertility.

Pfeiffer calls on everyone to take responsibility for our landscapes. His views and vision for the future are remarkably relevant today, sixty years after the original publication of this classic.
